Blemishes - acne breakouts, pimples, blackheads, tend to plague us in teenage years most but can last into adulthood. If you tend to have breakouts, or even just blackheads, you need to tackle the excess oil that you may be producing as well as removing the buildup of dead skin cells that can be a breeding ground for bacteria and pimples.  So, like those with oily skin, you want to find products that assist in balance these oils rather than stripping it raw - which will end up making it worse.  Regular use of the right essential oils, carrier oils and plant extracts can work to heal, protect and nourish your skin while keeping the excess oil away!
